A new Sonic location opened its doors in downtown Flushing, marking the franchise’s first-ever location to open in Queens.

The new Sonic is located at 136-51 Roosevelt Ave., less than one block away from the Flushing—Main St. 7 train station, and will be open from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. Due to its location, the Sonic will not have the franchise’s iconic drive-in features.

Sonic serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering a variety of options including hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, fries and tater tots as well as their unique frozen drinks, milkshakes and soda options. Known for its 1950s drive-in style, other locations of the chain allows customers to order from their cars and have their food delivered to them by servers in roller skates.

In February 2017, another Sonic location opened its doors just over the Queens border in Valley Stream. Located within the Green Acres Mall, the Sonic is open Sundays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to midnight, and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.
